The Red Dragon Girds Herself Up

So it turns out Arrested Development is really, really fucking funny. It's probably just as well I found this out now, post-cancellation, so I didn't have to go through the pissed-offedness of whatever being cancelled when I liked it and can now calmishly remember my belief that non-animated television comedies shouldn't stay on air for more than a few seasons anyways.

I saw a few episodes when it was on-air and thought it was fine, but now that Figaro got the first season for Christmas and we can sit and watch it without commercials or delaying the gratification of watching the next episode, it makes me laugh and laugh and laugh, like a happy baby or Graham Chapman playing international hide-and-seek. All the characters are great at what they do. GOB is funniest, maybe. Wow. Fucking funneeee. I understand now why Mr. S thought Fox should have kept it on even unprofitably to redeem itself for all the other crap it airs.

So there's that. I'm going back to work today. I think. I don't know. Nonetheless I'm in a good mood because I woke up early this morning and the sun was already doing this:

GOB is definitely the funniest (Canadian too of course). I was a big fan of AD right from the start, and one of those pissed-off viewers when it got cancelled. Krazy wouldn't watch it with me and then he caught an episode, bought the first season on DVD and the rest is history!

Have fun at work. Today is finally a normal, routine-like day for Tink and I too. I look forward to it actually!

Is he now? Has he been in other stuff? I like David Cross, too, the never-nude. Wow. So oblivious.

Work is, in fact, on, boo, but have fun with Tink.

I'm not sure what else Will Arnett has been in..I do know he's married to Amy Poehler from Saturday Night Live! Oh, doesn't he have a prison comedy coming out soon? It doesn't look so great...

Tink and I had a pretty good day. His nose is stuffed like a turkey so that sucs but otherwise we were out most of the afternoon and he was practising his flirting techniques. :)

Oh, that boy is dangerous!
